Should have flashed this. only jumped down to sort out pads... Found it pretty steady at the start. the rounded scrittley breaks, and detaching pebbles made it rather exciting higher up

2nd go, bailed on the last move on the flash.

Ground-up above pads. Font 7a+. This is what gritstone highballing is all about - truly incredible.

Wicked. A very satisfying consolation after accepting that I'll never manage to do Lowrider. Good trip out with Joe & Vicky. Ground up above pads

Complete on-off, never thought I'd even get myself established on this. Many thanks to the group from Rotherham who piled their mats up for me. Got up more by luck than judgement. More genius from john Allen, one of the great grit routes
